Occupational stress in contemporary fire service


Although it is universally accepted that firefighting ranks among the most stressful occupations in the U.S., the quality of information on the matter has often been limited and subject to extreme variation. To help address the situation, the authors provide a thorough review of the literature on psychic trauma resulting from critical occupational events, draw specific applications to fire and rescue enterprises, discuss models of addressing stress disorders, and argue for a reasoned, ethical, and effective approach to the problem.
